    To many lakes to count

    So I posted this in Passion but Wanted to share these pics with my FR peeps.

    For about the past 6 years I have stayed out here for a week and have had a chance to really explore the area on my mountain bike. I dont see how the scenery can get much better. The Absoraka Beartooths Mountains are on the NE corner of Yellowstone on the border of Wy and Montana.

    There are two rides posted here. I did the ride a couple of diffrent ways, the first day I got rained on wrecked and broke my rib. The second day was just picture perfect.


    Start of the ride


    Cruzin along lots hopin it does not rain


    Somehow my front tire got wedged between the side of the trail and this rock
    Ended up OTB and took a handle bar to my rib cage OUCH broken rib



    Plenty of water features


    Fork in the road



    And the Downhill Begins


    Mud kept clogging up my fork


    And a quick wash to get the mud off and this completes the first ride


    Perfect weather for day two!



    Dank Trail to start off on


    Every great ride requires a bit of Hike-A-Bike


    WOW!


    Not my best self timer shot


    More climbing


    Cruzin Along just blown away with the scenery



    Time for a little break and siphon some crystal clear glaicer water


    Getting close to the top


    Start of day two downhill no mud this time!


    Nice Shot Jay!



    More DH Shots


    The last part of the ride was all marsh around the lake but rideable


    And the Final Stream Crossing

    So I hope you enjoyed the show. I spent extra time trying to get good shots with my MTB Peeps in mind!

    I need to put a shout out to my man Nickle for showing me how to post like this.

    If you ended up drinking that then you might as well start the antibiotics now. Giardia will not be fun.

    Its about a 10 hour drive to get to the cabin we stay at in this area. From the cabin there are many ride choices.

    Yellowstone National Park is about 1hr away if you want to check out the park.

    Wow. Beautiful stuff. Got any pics of the cabin? Is it your's or one you rented? If it's available for rent I'd love a link to arrange it.

    I've been wanting to get back up to Wyoming for awhile now and that looks like just the spot.

    Thanks for the report.


    Aside: Is there more Girardia these days or are we just more paranoid about it? We used to drink out of the streams and lakes all the time when I was a kid and no one ever got sick.

    How far is that from Livingston MT? Seems like it would be close.
